Tenofovir DF- Warning!

If you have both HIV and hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and take tenofovir DF, your HBV infection may get much worse (flare up) if you stop taking tenofovir DF. Talk to your health care provider about taking an HBV test before you start tenofovir DF for the treatment of HIV. You should take an HIV test if you are taking tenofovir DF for the treatment of chronic HBV. The HBV drug adefovir dipivoxil (brand name: Hepsera) should not be taken with tenofovir DF.
While taking tenofovir DF, it is important to keep all of your appointments with your health care provider.
If you miss a dose of tenofovir DF, take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. But if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and just take your next dose at the regular time. Do not take two doses at the same time to make up for a missed dose.Tenofovir DF is a prescription medicine approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of HIV infection in adults and children 2 years of age and older. Tenofovir DF is always used in combination with other HIV medicines.
Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (tenofovir DF) can cause serious, life-threatening side effects. These include a buildup of lactic acid in the blood (lactic acidosis) and severe liver problems.
